Opening alert: Dhaba Xpress in Redwood City

Uploaded: May 2, 2018
A new Indian restaurant is now open in downtown Redwood City.

Dhaba Xpress opened at 312 Arguello St. in mid-April. It replaced another Indian takeout restaurant, Curry Wrappers Delight.

Nazreen Mohd Ayub, who's from Singapore, and Dolly Khatri, a native of India, are running the kitchen at Dhaba Xpress. Mohd Ayub is in charge of biryanis and meat dishes, while Khatri oversees vegetarian dishes and dessert.

The dishes come from family recipes, said Mohd Ayub's husband Jeelan. He said his wife learned to cook Indian cuisine from his mother.

Dhaba Xpress is primarily a take-out restaurant and is currently open for lunch only, though customers can pick up dinner orders. Diners can build their own combination meals from vegetarian or non-vegetarian entrees such as goat curry, shrimp masala or shaahi paneer, with sides of rice, roti, raita and salad. The menu changes daily.

Dhaba Xpress is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
